Indian teenager Mithun Chauhan suffers from an extremely rare genetic condition which has left him with large swollen lumps all over his face and body. The condition, known as Neurofibroma, affects just one in 33,000 people and causes tumours to grow along the nerve endings. The growths around Mithun’s face are so severe that he struggles to eat, see and breathe. This film follows the 16 year old as he undergoes major surgery to not only transform his face but also give him the chance to reclaim his life.
